The Day of the Dolphin Reviews

March 24, 2015
What is left, besides a lot of pretty dolphin footage, is some bad intercollegiate-revue satire, a shadow of Sea Hunt, and a calculated sentimentality that evokes memories of Lassie Come Home.
March 26, 2009
A rare and regrettably uneven combination of ideas and action.
January 26, 2006
A bizarre and often ridiculous attempt to merge documentary, suspense and comedy.
May 9, 2005
Some of the cloak-and-dagger stuff that follows is so awkwardly staged that it's difficult to know whether the simplicity was designed for youngsters or as parody.
October 23, 2004
Tries so hard not to be a conventional science-fiction thriller that it fails, alas, to be anything.
